thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. when it became clear that and sarah palin were a bad choice for the republican presidential ticket in 2008, it's starting to become clear that barack obama and joe biden were going to win the election and probably win big, right before that election took place, something kind of weird started happening in presidential politics. the tactic of the political fringe and the kind of stuff hecklers scream, that stuff started getting voiced by at least one of the candidates themselves. it felt weird at the time, i don't think it was by accident. i don't think it was unpredictable. at the time we were reporting on this turn in presidential politics before the '08 election, we said on this show what was happening should be considered a new law in american political science. i here by submit that the longer it's clear that liberals or democrats win an election or liberals or democrats win an argument, the more likely it becomes that someone is going to get called a commy. socialist. pinko comrade five-year planner. >> it's taking more

would be a way to move forward without touching the bill that is before us at the final passage. yet in the budget-writing committee, allow this motion which is a way that committee operates to move forward. that would be inclusive of anything negotiated in the face-to-face meeting i had with the democrats earlier in the week or the multiple meetings that the governors had. there is a reason that we continue to work on this and it's because ultimately we think that this bill shall pass and if it has to be rolled to the governor's budget later on, we will be voting on this in june. if the democrats stay until june or july, that's a long hold up for them. >> corey mason, does that sound feasible that the bill could be allowed to pass now and try to work something out later on legislation that would follow it? in order to correct the deficiencies that the democrats see in the bill. >> first they will take away our rights and promise to give them back later? i don't think that's in good faith. the quickest and easiest way is to meet democrats halfway on this. labor unions, assembly democrat
